When you’re shopping for a good pair of running shoes, first consider what type of running you’ll be doing. For instance, if most of your running will be inside on a treadmill, you’ll want to look for different features than if you’ll be running outside on pavement or on rugged trails. Consider if you need more cushioning from your running shoes, if you prefer a nice plush ride, or if your feet require more stability for a grounded feel to your run. If you’ll be doing most of your running outside on uneven terrain, check out our selection of outdoor and trail shoes. These styles provide more traction with aggressively lugged outsoles and are typically darker in color so that dirt doesn’t show easily.

If you really want to go all out with your outdoor exploration, you’ll want a good pair of hiking boots. These boots have lots of great features that enhance your hikes. Many of these styles have extra support around the ankle for stability and have a reinforced shank down the middle of the sole to allow for a steadier step over rocks and sticks. Lots of hiking boots also have waterproof properties and extra warmth so you can get your hike on in any type of weather Mother Nature throws your way. If your adventures take place in warmer weather, you’ll want to shop our selection of outdoor and water sandals. These styles are ready to take you where you want to go, with all the water-ready features to keep you comfortable.

Training shoes or cross-trainers, as they’re sometimes called, are what you want if you’re into hitting the gym. They’re great for weightlifting, aerobics classes and interval training. The main difference you’ll notice between trainers and running shoes is that sole of a training shoe is typically flatter than that of a running shoe. This is done intentionally to give the wearer more stability for lateral, or side-to-side, movements, whereas a runner is moving forward with a heel-to-toe motion.

So, are you ready to get moving? Start with a new pair of shoes from the Famous Footwear Active Shop for that extra bit of motivation and get your workout started off on the right foot.
